Dear leather jacket,
Thank you for being such a reliable piece of clothing. I get so happy on the first official day of spring because I know it’s warm enough to wear you and feel absolutely fabulous! I can pair you with anything without feeling boring, and you’re perfect to wear for any occasion depending on how I style you. Thank you for being you.
I do have a serious love affair with leather jackets since my high school days. I find the leather jacket to be the perfect everyday item to wear in spring, and it works with all kinds of outfits – formal and casual!
In my opinion, a black leather jacket is a great “must have” item for any woman! But it shouldn’t stop there! There are so many beautiful styles and colors that it’s perfectly fine to invest in more than just one! I enjoy the light colored leather jackets, like cream, blush pink, baby blue and yellow.
When I buy leather jackets, I make sure to get one that is one size too small, or has such a snug fit I can barely close it! I personally don’t like the oversized look so much; I think it will look too masculine with my style, so I want it to be as feminine and fitted as possible. The point for me is never to wear a leather jacket closed. Instead, it should be worn open which is why you can buy one size smaller if you share my philosophy. The good part is that with time the leather stretches a bit and molds to your body, which will give you almost a tailored look if opting in for a smaller size.
At the end of this post, I will share with you some leather jackets that I have found online and that are currently for sale! I’ve gotten many requests from you my readers who want me to include shopping tips, and from now on I will do that in all my fashion posts!
In various price ranges, including faux leather and real leather. I’ve added different styles and colours for different tastes, but all JetsetBabe approved that would look really classy for spring and summer 2018!
